“Acadeum, a company that helps colleges share online courses with each other, nabbed $11.9 million in its latest funding round, it announced Wednesday.
Green Street Impact Partners led the Series B round, along with ECMC Group and Pearson Ventures. Acadeum plans to use part of the funding to hire employees to promote the company’s course-sharing platform.
The ed tech company has raised nearly $24 million since its founding in 2016, according to Crunchbase, which tracks investments. Acadeum bills its services as a way to keep students on a path toward graduation and provide them with access to online courses not offered by their own institutions.” — Higher Ed Dive’s Natalie Schwartz
